Commonweal is the oldest independent lay Catholic journal of opinion in the United States. Free of any church control or agenda, Commonweal strives to be a truly independent voice, faithful to the Catholic tradition but always questioning the unexamined assumptions of church and society alike. Commonweal's contributors include many of the Catholic world's most prominent thinkers and engaging writers, and its editorials offer timely views on the church, politics and culture that can surprise and frustrate both liberals and conservatives.
